Guests have the opportunity to indulge in many different local customs during the Christmas season in Zell am See-Kaprun. During the annual „Krampus-Procession“ at the beginning of December visitors can witness shaggy, gruesome creatures which accompany Saint Nicholas with loud bell-ringing and noise while pushing their way through the old streets of Zell am See, Kaprun and the surrounding communities. According to the legend, good children will be given presents to by Saint Nicholas, while the naughty ones are being punished by his scary companions, the Krampusse.
